The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund teacher and counseling staff training in mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) and provide for subsequent instruction of MBIs within the school context. The host agency is the Windsor Unified School District, located in Sonoma County, California.
The goals of the program include teaching mindfulness techniques to designated school staff and students, reducing school staff stress, and increasing the social and emotional learning of students. The objectives include delivering a 12-week MBI training to at least 40% of designated school staff in the district, as well as providing an 8-week, 20-minute MBI series taught to students. Program success will be evaluated through pre- and post-testing of school staff and students with respect to their stress levels and social and emotional skills.
